Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

Write... right?

I'm sitting here wondering what to write. You've experienced that too, right? An update from me is overdue, so here I am. Physically, there hasn't been a big change. Therapy is over, so now I continue the exercises on my own. Typing is still mostly with one hand. I'm considering using a "voice recognition" system to enable me to continue writing... waiting to get a microphone for my laptop. An ingenious device... I speak and it records (types) what I say. That will be fun, I think.

My last post was just before Thanksgiving. All of my holidays were very nice. I hope your holidays were as cheerful and warm as mine. The worse thing was finding out my Cd of "The Grinch" finally bit the dust. I had to watch it online. If that was the worse thing, then I think I'm doing great!

Mentally and emotionally I'm hanging tough. Staying positive helps my recovery. I decided to do some crafting to coordinate my hands, and to distract me...For Christmas I made salt dough ornaments. It's a great way to get both hands working together. 

My next adventure is to make a 10" x 5" salt dough plaque... a birthday gift for my God-daughter. Once I paint it, I'll glue this seahorse clip art onto the plaque. Then I'll coat it translucent with a glitter paint. I think it will look pretty in her "beach themed" bathroom. 

As soon as I learn to use the camera on my new phone, I'll upload a picture of the seahorse plaque. Until then, I wish you peace and love. 

Additionally, "Happy New Year"! Love, Dixie
